What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We do not collect any personal data on any visitors to our web site.

We do not collect or handle any of your personal credit card information at any time, and no credit card information is ever stored in any of our servers.

If you decide to purchase any item from our web site you will be directed securely to our authorized payment gateway Stripe, who will collect your credit card information and process the payment through their own secure servers.

We do not collect information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records or bodies, or private organizations. We do not collect or use personal data for any purpose other than that indicated in this policy statement.

We will never sell or share your personal data with anyone outside our organization.


You can browse our web site without having to register or disclose your personal data. You will not be asked to register first in order to purchase any item from our web site.

However, you may be asked to register and log in if you decide to leave comments on our web site.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You can request a copy of your personal data in our servers. We will provide you with a readable copy of your personal data, although we may require proof of your identity before we release that information. We will provide the information at no charge. You may also ask us to erase, amend or complete your personal data.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
